The same words often carry very different meanings for artists working in different fields, while the same maneuvers often signify in different ways according to disciplinary context. The Kitchen L.A.B. (its acronym stands for “language,” “art,” “bodies”) invites artists to unpack such ambiguous vocabularies in contemporary art by responding to them both in conversation and artworks, creating hybrid events—and, over time, hybrid audiences—that underline not only points of commonality among disciplines but also, as important, real differences.
Please join us for conversation on February 27 with Yve Laris Cohen, Daniel Lopatin, and Park McArthur as they engage the term “audience.”
February 27, 6:30pm
To see videos of the entire L.A.B. series please visit our Vimeo page.
Installation view: Park McArthur at Essex Street, NY.
